Rain-Saturated Snow Causing Some Flooding PDF Print E-mail

            The two-feet of snow we received this week is now being saturated and melted by rain, and the National Weather Service has a flood advisory in effect for Kodiak. Several areas of deep standing water are already gathering on roads from Women's Bay to Mill Bay. The concern is the saturated snow will clog storm drains and culverts, causing them to back up. The word from the city manager is the conditions will get worst before they get better.

            City schools started an hour later today in an attempt to give kids who walk more daylight, since sidewalks are clogged with snow. The busses picked up kids in Bell's Flats at the AC Express because the roads inside the neighborhood were not plowed wide enough.

            Saint Paul morning preschool was canceled, but the daycare and afternoon preschool will go on as scheduled.

            Heavy rain, up to an inch and a half, is expected as a large and warm Pacific low sweeps over the island. The same storm is also causing a blizzard warning for Seward, Portage and the Turnagain Arm. The flood advisory went into effect at 10 this morning, and will remain in effect until 5 a.m. Tuesday.

            Stay tuned to KMXT for regular weather updates throughout the day.
